About Under the Scarlet Tree
When the dead become the undead, the alive will do whatever is necessary to survive.
Mya Whitten-Davis thought of the baby in her stomach as she shoved the knife into the base of her husband’s skull. It had to be done. An undead father didn’t fit into her idea of a perfect family. He would understand and if their neighbor had taken a chunk out of her, he would have done the same.
She had lost her parents at 18 years old and when her older sister decided the stress was too much, the job of raising her sister and brother fell to her. Caring for her siblings had always been her responsibility regardless of their age. She would stop at nothing to ensure the safety of her brother and sister.
While a scene from the latest zombie flick became reality, Mya and her brother, Logan, set off on a road trip to not only survive, but to get to their sister, Lilianna, before she became undead. Sibling loyalty has no bounds.
Mya finds her journey filled with unexpected turns, countless losses, new friends and a spark of romance.
Under the Scarlet Tree. A place of reflection to those lost to the undead. A place to build new memories.
